SHOWS NEED FOR, AND CONSTRUCTION OF PIPELINE FROM BIG RAPIDS TO DETROIT, MICHIGAN. GOOD OUTDOOR CONSTRUCTION FOOTAGE, ALSO SHOTS OF GAS USERS.
• 9:50:54:21- 9:51:04:02
Men move furniture into a new home which is identical to the dozens of small, red brick houses surrounding it. A woman stands outside one of the houses. Looks like a (lower) middle-class housing development.

• 9:52:18:15- 9:52:26:27
More post war population boom housing developments.
Men work on new houses in a newly developed community. All the houses are identical (small, red brick).

• 9:53:06:18- 9:53:18:19
Nice image of a cylinder container holding gas. It is silver with red checkers at the top with what looks like a little water tower at the top. Small airplanes move around it.

• 9:53:39:14- 9:54:40:04
Pan of large gas / coal (?) plant. We view containers of gas, buildings, tubing, etc...

• 10:02:03:05- 10:02:17:12
Good shot of large trucks being loaded with long links of piping by a crane. Beautiful storm clouds move by.

worth noting: Nice image of men inserting pipes into the ground—an A&P supermarket stands next to them. (10:10:19:03)

Subject: "This is how it's done"
At least this segment of film in the Pipe Of Plenty series had a bit of a story... Farmer agrees to lend his land to lay pipe... Pipe is manufactured, and then laid down. That's it! Good scenes of the laying, with people hard at work, and yes, bigwigs in hats looking on.
